The Holy Gold Blockchain of Bitcoin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Hodl Moon with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.641 billion Bitcoinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Satoshi Heights. The average income tax rate is 31.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Bitcoinian economy, worth 349 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,040 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable, and small children are frequently chased by rehabilitated pitbulls. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bitcoin's national animal is the unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moonism.

Bitcoin is ranked 244,853rd in the world and 3rd in Satoshi for Nicest Citizens, with 0.88 average smiles per day.
